Great location- 5 minutes from copacabana. Staff were very friendly and helpful and there was a great atmosphere at the hostel. Main complaint was that the beds were not the comfiest.

What a breath of fresh air!! Really welcoming and friendly staff! It's not a huge hostel & the other reviews about the beds and lockers are true, but you forgive it for the friendly atmosphere, yummy brekkie and excellent cocktails at the bar! Love my time here and would highly recommend

the staff working there is great and really helpful (thanks Victor!). rooms are a bit packed and because of the bunk-bunk beds can be quiet loud. the bar is great (free caipi on arrival plus caipi happy hour). thanks for a fantastic stay in rio!

Very nice hostel and the people working there are very friendly and extremely helpful. The hostel is just very crowded with not enough space for everyone to chill in.

As a solo female traveler Chill on the beach makes you feel like family. From the at home vibe, friendly staff, chill atmosphere, amazing breakfast. Chill comes through on everything. Made lifelong friends, we always partied together, beach time together, watched footie games & kicked it. Massive # of bunks is overwhelming but what it lacks in room makes up in atmosphere. Pedro= killer drinks, Tati kills u w/ laughter, victor makes blunt but sweet comments, cleaning lady

Central location in Copacabana, strong hostel security policies and very helpful staff are the best reasons to stay at Chill on the Beach. They also serve a good breakfast from 9am. Drawbacks are small rooms and plastic mattresses, that get hot and make a lot of noise. Also, while the lockers are big, they are old metal lockers which are so noisy, the whole room wakes up when someone opens theirs. But overall we had a great time here, and I think Chill is quite good by Rio standards.

Really amazing hostel in a perfect location. Super close to the beach (5 minutes walking). Close to the various night time spots (within a 20-30R cab ride or easy bus/metro ride). The staff is some of the best hostel staff I've ever had. Great atmosphere for the partiers and the more relaxed backpackers.

Great hostel. Only issue was when you moved in the beds, it made a lot of noise. Besides that, the staff were amazing and it was a great value for the price.

Really nice hostel in a good location, chilled atmosphere and lovely staff. Just one thing, could not sleep in the loud uncomfortable beds! You'd wake up every time someone moved and the thin plastic-y mattress was so uncomfortable, such a shame because other than that it was a lovely hostel (and helped us book a great favela walking tour!)
